What Is Naturopathic Medicine?


Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of holistic medicine that skillfully combines ancient therapeutic traditions with modern science to restore health.  Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are trained to use a variety of therapies including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, physical medicine, lifestyle recommendations, as well as natural and pharmaceutical medicines. We work to support the body’s innate ability to heal with natural therapeutics by following the guiding principles of naturopathic medicine.
 

 What Is A Naturopathic Doctor?


Licensed naturopathic doctors (ND) attend four-year, post-graduate, in-residence accredited naturopathic medical schools.  In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic doctor is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, naturopathic philosophy, psychology, and counseling.

 

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

1.

THE HEALING POWER OF NATURE.

The Naturopathic physician believes in the body’s innate ability to heal.

2.

IDENTIFY AND TREAT THE ROOT CAUSE.

We work to go beyond treating the symptoms of an illness to find the cause of illness whenever possible.

3.

FIRST, DO NOT HARM.

We use low risk and natural methods to treat patients using approaches that have few to no side effects.

4.

EDUCATION.

 Knowledge is power; whenever we can, we involve our patients in the prevention and treatment at home or in the approaches they can learn to use themselves.

 

5.

TREAT THE WHOLE PERSON.

Health is determined by physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social and spiritual elements. None in isolation.

6.

PREVENTION.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." We work with our patients to create specific healthy lifestyle plans that take into account personal risk factors, heredity and vulnerability to future disease.

Naturopathic Order of Healing

1. Remove Obstacles to Health

In order to return to health, the initial step must be removal of anything creating a disturbance to health. 

 

2. Stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms

Every person has within them a wisdom and intelligence that constantly tends toward the healthiest expression of  function.

3. Strengthen Weakened or Damaged Systems – Restore and Regenerate

Sometimes the mind, spirit and body’s systems or functions need more than stimulation to improve. Systems that are under or over active or that need repair or support are addressed in this step.

 

4. Correct Structural Integrity

This level involves the use of physical therapies such as spinal manipulation, massage therapy, electrotherapy and cranio-sacral therapy to improve, support, and maintain musculature, fascial and skeletal integrity.

5. Use Natural Therapies to Address Pathology and Symptoms

Although the primary objective of naturopathic medicine is to restore health, not to treat a distinct pathology, there are instances where specific pathologies must be addressed and managed. In these cases, naturopathic doctors utilize physiologically synergistic, dependable, effective natural substances that are unlikely to add toxic burden, cause adverse effects, place undue additional strain on an already disordered system, nor undermine the vis medicatrix naturae, while relieving the symptoms which cause suffering.

 

6. Use Pharmaceutical or Synthetic Substances to Stop Progressive Pathology

When necessary, synthetic or pharmaceutical substances may be employed to restrain or strongly manage symptoms or address specific pathology.

7. Use High Force, Invasive Therapies to Suppress Pathology

Sometimes it is necessary in the interest of patient health, comfort and safety to suppress pathological symptoms and processes as a strategy, prior to addressing underlying causal factors, and ultimately restoring health.

READY TO TRANSFORM YOUR HEALTH?

"Dr. Kalstein is the most patient, kind, and attentive doctor. She is smart, well-read, well-cultured, open-minded, and always thinks outside the box. She's not the kind of doctor with a pre-determined plan and agenda who cranks through patients and hands out prescriptions to alleviate symptoms. She will fight with you and for you to research, explore, and identify the root cause of problems, and is always willing to go the extra mile to find true solutions. She's in the health industry for all the right reasons- someone who clearly has a pure and genuine desire to help people suffer less and live fuller, healthier lives. I'm extremely grateful to be a patient of Dr. Kalstein and to have her as a teammate in my pursuit of health now and in the future.”
